Group Work with Adolescents: Principles and Practice

Front Cover
Guilford Publications, Aug 23, 2004 - Psychology - 378 pages
Now in a revised and expanded second edition, this popular text provides essential knowledge and skills for conducting creative, strengths-based group work with adolescents in a range of settings. A rich introduction to the field, the book is enlivened by numerous instructive and moving illustrations from actual sessions. The second edition has been extensively rewritten and updated to reflect the current literature, and includes many new examples, resources, and practice innovations. Four entirely new chapters spell out seven basic principles of strengths-based practice; describe "groups-on-the-go," an innovative approach to spontaneous, school-based mutual aid groups; address intervention in the aftermath of large-scale traumatic events; and highlight the value of self-reflection for successfully handling even the most challenging group situations.
